If I was fired by my previous employer. Should I tell the truth in the interview? Do not lie under any circumstances because a lie can easily spiral out of control. If you are fired, be honest. Tell the interviewer you were made redundant or it was a summary dismissal due to personal clashes with the previous employer. Suggest they seek references from another of your previous employers. What if my boss asks me to fulfil duties I am reluctant to do, like staying overseas for a long period? Determine an employer's expectations and communicate with them about any differences. Let your boss know you are sincere about solving any problems. Usually, effective communication between a boss and an employee can only be reached through trial and error. What should I do if my boss does not keep his promise to reward me after I complete a project? Find out why this is happening. After you have reached an agreement with the boss, you should write a 'thank you letter' to summarise the terms of agreement for future reference. If an employer is untrustworthy, a worker should resign and stop wasting their own time. What should I do if my probation is extended or the company dismisses me? Do not lose your temper but be positive. One new employee who had his probation extended decided his boss had yet to see his true ability and is now a senior manager of the company. If you are fired, handle the situation gracefully and discreetly. Pack your belongings and leave with dignity.
